-- From the Penn State Doceri Staff --
Steve James from Doceri will be on campus to do two Doceri training sessions on Friday, May 3. They will be broadcast live through Connect, and the recordings will be made available after the sessions. Both sessions will be more or less the same, so if you're interested, sign up for either!
Faculty, instructors, and graduate students are invited to sign up for free workshops during Summer-Fest (May 6-10, 2013) developed to target technology as it relates to pedagogy and research. Topics include ANGEL, Adobe Connect, Accessibility, Google Docs, Sites at Penn State, using the iPad in the classroom, and Yammer. In addition, workshops will be held by representatives from Apple, i>clicker, and lynda.com.
The following sessions are available from ITS Training in late January and February. Topics include VoiceThread (tomorrow), ANGEL, blogs, clickers, LionSearch from the Libraries, Sites at Penn State, Wikispaces, Yammer and building a "stellar syllabus."
